As of the beginning of last month, Twitter removed support for their simple authentication mechanism, so I was forced to carry out my plans to upgrade to implement OAuth for authentication. Fortunately, Twitter linked to some helpful examples. Nevertheless, even with a library to help me along, it was fairly painful. (Part of that might have been due to the fact that I had a cold for the first part of the work, and a flu for the rest.)

Nevertheless, my auto-tweeting, and my site-integrated tweeting are now both functional. Hoorah!
